Music has always been a huge part of my life. I’m sure that statement holds true for many people. Music has helped me get through some tough times, but my love for music began in early childhood.
I was just a little girl as I sat and listened to the music my parents listened to; a little Frank Sinatra, a bit of the Beatles, and many of the other popular artists of the 60’s. I had favorite songs back then, too. I get nostalgic when I hear something from the ‘good ol’ days’.
In the 70’s, I was introduced (by radio DJ’s) to The Carpenters, Elton John, Billy Joel, The Bee Gees, Abba…and so many more pop artists. Then came AC/DC, Queen, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, and The Eagles. When I was old enough to buy my own records, I was thrilled! I bought my records with my babysitting money in a little record store, aptly named, “The Music Box.” I loved that place!
Most of my favorite songs are from the 90’s – I’m not saying I don’t have favorites from other decades, but my Top 15 favorite songs are mostly from the 90’s. The following songs made my list based on lyrics, guitars, drums, or on a deeper, more personal level. I hope you enjoy these videos!
The song, The Final Countdown, got stuck in my head over the weekend. Dad and I were discussing the pandemic and how we’re all in this together. We agreed that the longer we ignore the science, the longer it will take to get this under control.
We spoke of the millions who have contracted COVID-19, and the millions who will die unnecessarily before this is over IF we all don’t band together and do what needs to be done. I mean, a few minor inconveniences seems a much better plan for the future than being on a ventilator and dying alone. The last thing that came out of my mouth, which nearly brought me to tears was, “If we don’t get our shit together, this could be our final countdown.”
And that’s all it took for this song to get stuck in my head for 2 days, and now regrettably, every time I hear the song I will think of the year 2020 and how we have failed.
No, I don’t think it’s the end of the world, but it’s quite possibly the end of the world as we know it…. Well, shit. Now that song is stuck in my head!
This week has been much better than the last, pain wise. Last week, my brain was so scrambled from intense pain that I totally forgot about Friday’s Funnies. When I finally remembered, it was Monday. Gasp!
I’ll start this week’s funnies by adding something to what I call Shit My Dad Says.
Two days ago, Dad went out to the mailbox for the mail. He came back in and says, “You’ve got something here from Jake.” I say, Jake? Jake who?” Dad says “Jake! Jake, from State Farm.” I laughed until I snorted. It was a letter from State Farm!
If you don’t know what Jake’s connection is to State Farm, then check out the original commercial below. Then please enjoy the rest of this week’s funnies!
My 3rd Place favorite this week:
The next two tie for 2nd Place!
Are you ready for 1st Place??
Big SNORT! That groundhog is my spirit animal! Which were your faves this week? I hope you got a few laughs, maybe even a couple snorts! You just can’t go through life with a snort now and then!
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends! Have a few laughs (and adult beverages) and for goodness sake, don’t forget to wash your hands!
Happy Friday, everyone! I can’t believe how quickly the weeks pass. We had some 50-degree weather this week, with sunshine, spiders and wasps! I hate the warmer weather specifically for those nasty 8-legged, creepy, scary things! Last night the temperature dropped to around 16 degrees and that made me happy because the spiders went back into their crevices…for the time being anyway. My pain level has been a bit on the extreme side today, from the cold I’m sure. I hope you are all doing great!
This week’s group of funnies is a bit short, I’m afraid. I didn’t see as many things online that tickled me. But that’s ok. I hope you enjoy these anyway!
Well, what did you think? I hope something tickled your funny bone! I like “butthole” and “dingleberry” the best! Snort!!
Just a quick thanks to all of you who read my blog and leave comments. I appreciate all of you! Thank you ever so much! I hope your weekend is good to you!
Happy Friday! Well, Happy Frustrating Friday, is more like it. Nevermind. I won’t go there.
Here are this week’s funnies. I hope you enjoy them!
There you go, friends! I hope you enjoyed this week’s funnies! I think I got the biggest kick out of the Scotsman in the wrong house video! Anywhere else and he would have been shot dead, am I right? Which ones were your faves?
This weekend is supposed to bring great weather for the Superbowl and for fans everywhere! I’m not a football fan but Dad and I have our own little Superbowl party (just the two of us) every year. I try to make game day fun for Dad since he doesn’t socialize with anyone. I make hot wings and other snacks, I drink beer and Dad drinks his wine. I enjoy the commercials when they don’t suck while Dad enjoys the game! Do you have plans for Superbowl Sunday?
Whatever your plans, drive safely and have a great time!
